I'm with you AJBeads--I'm still having trouble getting my Kiosk over to my Biz Page. This has been since yesterday. I have a Kiosk button on my personal/admin/profile/whatever page but there has been no "add to button.

Still wondering how to put The AF Kiosk into effect.

Oh!You guys are wonderful--thanks for all the likes. It sure makes this learning process a lot more fun!

YIPEEE!!!

I found the answer to the problem with the AF kiosk....  Go to ArtFire Facebook Kiosk Trouble Shooting pages.... click page 6 in the first post on page 6 Hippieknots has an active link to the artfire kiosk application on facebook [it's facebook in blue].   Click that - down at the very bottom on the left you will find clickable options... click add kiosk to page.

YAY!!  It works!  :-)

Now, I need Artfire and facebook to allow TWO KIOSK applications on ONE facebook page .... sigh.... I tied both of my studios to one page to make life more simple...  Maybe Artfire and Postling will put their heads together to make this possible since MANY of us have more than one artfire studio.    maybe a code for kiosk 1... and another for kiosk 2 ????

Hey Artfire, jump in here and help us out with this one.

This is WAY TOO COOL I have to share it. Because I couldn't add a second kiosk to my fb Page I typed a little message and included information about my second studio [AJBeads]. A thumbnail popped up with a live link that takes you directly to my AF studio!!!

Come by and check it out @Strawberryfields - copy and paste the complete link in my siggy below.

I'm actually having some trouble with the Static FBML. I have read over all the instructions and I cannot figure it out. According to the information on the link the OP gave us, there should be an "add to page" link. Well I can't find one. All I find is add to pages favorites, which I know is not the same. I have even clicked on the go to app and it brings me right back to my newsfeed. Does anyone have any idea what I'm missing?

on Apr 7, 2011 at 7:11pm MST




With the changes Facebook was making, I thought they were going to do away with the FBML, and you would have to use iFrame, or some other application? I was just reading on Linked In about this, but don't remember suggestions that were being given

I am a small, very small business, with very little following.  Most of what you are writing about is information for businesses that already have a following, customers, interested parties, etc.  I don't.  So how can I begin to work with what your suggestions if I have nothing to start with.  What I really signed up for was to learn how a new business, with little sales and few customers can become a profitable shop.

on Apr 7, 2011 at 10:35am MST




We all start some where, and some of the businesses coming by here for the boot camp do not have much following themselves or are just starting out, and are participating in order to find ways to gain views, gain customers, get their names out there, show their brand, and etc. Everyone starts from the bottom, and works at bringing themselves up to where they are, where they plan to be, achieving their goals set for themselves, and etc.

I went by you shop, and seen there were no products listed there, and it also showed that it has been 3 days since you checked into your shop.

There are many many things to do to get your name out there, show your business more, show people what you do, and so on. Have to show consistancy...let people know you check in, have products showing for others to see, when we all list items for sale we can't just leave it at that but must do more to make it visible......twitter, facebook, blog, flickr, picasa, participate with different social medias, put your name & back links everywhere that you can......every little bit will help to get your name out there, and when that happens along the way you start getting picked up by google, you start ranking with google, and of course with other searches too.

We all have to work at what we do, we all have started with nothing, no customers, no followers, no one knowing us. But, we have all done what we can to bring ourselves slowly up, get to where we are, and yes...it takes a lot of work to do this....I myself only wish it could be a 9-5, but it is not till we become bigger ourselves, or get our sales to where we are comfortable with them. Brick & Mortar stores do the same things....they don't just put inventory in the building, and open the doors...they too have to do many things to get their names out there, what they do, what they sell, location of where they are, etc etc.

If you have any questions, the forums are always open with many many great people around here to help. These forums are great for help, and for learning from too. They are some of the best around that I have seen, and participated with too:) Best of luck to you, and everyone here:)

I am in the same position as Bluetina and HarrietsJewels with the starting out business. I sold a number of things through shops and galleries back when I was living in the chicago area but didn't have any "brand" presence. I dropped out of the scene for a number of years, what with twins being born and a move to Indiana. Now I am starting all over. But I figure I should just take it step by step and not beat myself up too much along the way. Instead of "no body will ever buy my stuff or know who I am", I'm trying the "it takes time - just keep it up" approach.

This bootcamp is really awesome so far for me. I've mostly shunned social media (thinking of it as useless tripe for the kids) but I see how powerful it can be and I'm on board! This was great timing as I only joined (well only a basic member so far) ArtFire about a week ago!

By the way, thanks for all the LIKES on my page!

"social proof" is exactly the term I've been looking for in thinking about why social media works and why we should take advantage of it. I tend to look around company websites before I buy anything so I can decide if I can trust them. I'm a person who cares about who I buy from and FB is a great place to find out what the face of the company looks like. Even though I don't think of myself as a crowd follower I'm sure I'm influenced by what real people say about companies and their experiences.

Laura,

Good point!  I always want to know the company is trustworthy and by having customers post gives us *proof*.

I also had a lot of problems setting up the AF Kiosk and I spent a ton of time reading trying to find the answer.  I finally found the solution to my problem in this thread from the help guides forum.  In my case, the answer was on page 13 in that link in a post by Kevin.  It is very frustrating that once FB made changes a new set of instructions wasn't set up.   BTW, I had to log out of FB then log back in to have the kiosk show up - I don't know if others had that experience or not.

Keep at it, you'll get it.  It's really worth it!
